    Alt+Tab / window switching sometimes doesn't work?


    As per GIF below, sometimes after resuming from sleep, alt+tab / window switching stops working. the only ways for it to work are:

    1. win+D to go desktop first, then go to app (and I have to repeat it every time I switch apps)
    2. OR restart the PC

    I tried restarting just explorer.exe but it doesn't work. Any workaround for this without having to restart PC?

    I don't know if these will point you in the right direction . . .

    Hi there, apologies but the solutions are not relevant to my scenario, as it happens intermittently and not because I forgot to enable app switching etc.
